One common approach to the seemingly inevitable onslaught of climate change impact is to, well, bury our heads in the sand and pretend that everything will be just fine. Here’s the thing: things *can* be just fine, says environmental scientist Johan Rockström. But we have to take action. In this fast-paced, passionate talk, he zips through both threats and potential solutions to the current global environmental situation, and describes how we can peacefully transform to living on a truly resilient planet. Filmed at TEDGlobal in Edinburgh in 2013.
